“Neglectful”

Written on: 07/03/2020 by Bailey393 (1 review written)

Everything about the experience was completely disorganised. Staff have no interest in you once you are abroad and are completely focused on recruiting the next round of volunteers. Lots of hidden costs to be paid that make it completely inaccessible to anyone from a non-wealthy background. Any problems experienced while abroad are met with complete disinterest and staff are extremely deceitful in regards to decision making. Would recommend organising your own gap year as you will experience… Read Full Review

“totally neglectful of their volunteers”

Written on: 08/02/2020 by Killianl203 (1 review written)

In-country support is non-existent - you'd do much better to organise your own placement or just travel instead. For £6k you would presume training in-country and assistance if things go wrong - but Project Trust staff are totally disinterested in problems… Read Full Review

“Bad experience”

Written on: 08/01/2020 by siRoss486 (1 review written)

My experience with project trust was pretty bad. They placed me with a girl who looked down on me because of where I was from. Although project trust purposely puts you with someone so that you learn from them I had a terrible time living with someone who thought she was better than me. Overall, they are not inclusive or welcoming of people from certain regions and look at you differently if you have a 'certain accent'. I was so upset and felt so homesick sometimes and they did nothing to help… Read Full Review

“When I was in South Africa our support in country...”

Written on: 30/04/2019 by kbgrytant (1 review written)

When I was in South Africa our support in country guide was not present during departures back home. When there were issues with our tickets, we were left in Johannesburg airport with noone to ask for support. 

Our parents were told we had missed our flight because we were late. This was not the case. When our parents asked okay, how are they going to get back? There was very little support and the only point emphasised to the parents were, you will have to pay us to book a ticket home rather

“They ask for that much money, but they do not make any...”

Written on: 05/11/2009 by BatistaHH (1 review written)

They ask for that much money, but they do not make any profit! they are a charity and they try to provide the best gap year to their volunteeres!
I would recomend them any day.
They are one of the only companies that have a selection course to make sure they can offer the best gap year possible and make sure you are ready and will enjoy the experience!… Read Full Review
